“30 beers on tap and great service”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

Excellent selection of beers on tap, at least 30 at the time. Service was very fast and our server was outstanding. My wife had the salmon BLT and I had the chipotle grilled chicken sandwich, both were cooked just right and tasted great. San Francisco Giants baseball game was on so there was a good crowd making the bar area a bit conversationally challenged as one would expect. We scored a booth and were able to converse quite comfortably. Good experience for us, will definitely go back.

“Good food - good for lunch”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

I had a steak sandwich with dill havarti that was very good. My husband had a burger which he also thought was very good. The restaurant was crowded with local people on lunch, but we still had no problem getting a table around 1 on a weekday.

“the place to hang out with the locals”
Reviewed 14 August 2010

In the Financial district - this place is packed at lunch and happy hour! (A good sign)
30+ beers on tap, and wide variety menu including a 1/4 lb hot dog. The grilled burgers and salads are great.

Not over priced ... but not for the budget tourists. (there is a Mc Dee's up the block)

Easy to fnd corner of Front and Sacramento (across from Walgreens)

This place gets real busy and crowded - a testimony to its popularity with the Financial District crowd. Good drinks, food, service and very convenient location.
